The Wandering, Dwindling Chinese Opera Troupes Of Bangkok
"Sleep like dogs, eat like pigs, dress like angels. This, in their own words, is the life of an itinerant Chinese opera singer. They are the Gypsies of Bangkok, hauling their stages, their costumes, their musical instruments, their hammocks and their cooking gear through the back streets of the city from one Chinese temple to the next ... for a shrinking following of increasingly elderly ethnic Chinese Thais."
